Volunteer at Harkenrider Senior Activity Center, retired Rite-Aid employee and substitute teacher
When and why did you move to Hermiston?
I had a job here, at Payless Shoes. I’ve lived here since 1990. I’m from Pilot Rock; I didn’t get that far.
What is your favorite place to eat in Hermiston?
I like to go to Chen’s and Denny’s, but I don’t go out too often.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I read a lot, I garden. I also sew and teach Sunday School at Landmark Missionary Baptist Church.
What surprises you about Hermiston?
How fast it’s growing.
What was the last book you read?
“The Victims,” I can’t remember the author. It was about an internet homicide and the court case that followed.
What website or app do you use most other than Facebook?
I do have a Facebook, but I don’t do much on it.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
I would probably go to Alaska again. I took a cruise there and it was short, but it was fun.
What is the funniest thing that’s ever happened to you?
I can’t think of anything.
What is one of your goals for the next 12 months?
I want to finish a quilt I’ve started, it has to be together by September when my daughter visits from Arkansas. I don’t want to ship it out there!
What is your proudest accomplishment?
Probably my children. They’re all educated and self-sufficient. That’s the goal!
